A 6 part comedy drama series written as a vehicle for Pam Ayres. Until I was taken by Mrs Pigman to see a live Pam Ayres show, I was not a fan, but I have never seen anybody so comfortable with and close to her audience, making each member of the audience feel that they and Pam are sitting together having a cup of tea and a chat. A truly consummate professional.
In this series, Pam and Gordon (the ever reliable Geoffrey Whitehead) run a garden centre, the background for six gentle but entertaining tales. Sadly, only one series was made.
